EURES a source of experienced European employees
Every year Hannover, Germany, plays host to the largest trade show in Europe. Around 6 500companies from the fields of innovation, development and industry gather under one roof. In April 2011, EURES Germany went along to promote its services to companies and jobseekers.
“EURES is a unique tool that could help companies to find potential employees with European experience. EURES has over 600 000 CVs currently registered on the EURES portal; a qualified network of 850 advisers; and organises around 100 European Job Days every year throughout Europe. This is our main message to the companies present at the trade show,” says Nathalie Rivault, EURES coordinator in Germany.
“It is clear though that too few companies are aware of our services, so we still have a lot of work to do to raise awareness of EURES services among European companies,” she adds.
“We want companies, like the ones present at the trade show, to know how EURES helps people to gain a European work experience and thereby upgrade their CVs. EURES is facilitator for employers to find the European experience employees that a lot of companies are looking for,” explains Nathalie Rivault.
The Hannover trade show attracts over 230 000 visitors
